Lookbook/Chictopia

Today's outfit is a total contrast to Mondays. It really made me laugh at just how many people said i suited the goth look, maybe it's something i should bring out more often...? I absolutely love this jumper, it's another item i nabbed from my Mum when i was raiding the loft last year. I have to wear a long top under it, because it's a bit itchy. But it's so so so cute and i have mega love for cats <3

I decided to have a go at doing some online shopping last night, I'm actually so impressed. Both HMV & Play.com are both doing free shipping. I don't know about you, but i hate paying for postage when i can easily just walk in to town and get it for nothing. So i managed to get Dad and Matt some goodies, and after updating my list i actually have pretty much everything i want to get. I need to find last min bits for Matt now... i wish his birthday wasn't so close to Xmas! I'm still waiting for an Amazon order i made on 25/11. Really would love that to arrive soon.

Epic fail on the uni front this week, it's seriously such a waste of time going in, i just get so distracted and end up spending the whole time chatting. So not productive! I've got two deadlines on Wednesday so it's going to be a busy few days. But then it means the holidays! Woooo!

I'm going to make a video at some point this weekend. I'm still undecided about whether to do it on plus size or just a general FAQ. So for tonight only I'm going to open up my Formspring to everyone. But I'll tell you this now, if you want to insult me and bring on the hate, then go for it. But i will be deleting it quicker than what you could write it.

Just before i go and make ANOTHER coffee, I'm currently selling these Vivienne Westwood sunglasses (i have two pairs). So let me know if you're interested.

  1. That looks so warm!!

    And yes, I know exactly what you mean about postage! It's one of those things that puts me off buying stuff online!

  2. "I have mega love for cats" Oh Victoria you make me laugh!! I love this jumper, it looks like a Christmas jumper but then you see it's cats! Very cute!

    Looking forward to your new video, I vote for FAQ! :)

  3. That jumper is immense, I love finding little gems in my parents' wardrobes.

    I love play.com for their free p+p, I always spend a while on there whenever I have to get presents for anyone first cause they have some brilliant novelty items in their gadgets section.

    Good luck with the work!

  4. :O I need a jumper like that in my life. You look beautiful as ever Victoria (: Amazon are also doing free delivery on certain things which has really helped. Corr, I'm jealous that you've nearly completed your shopping. I've ran out of money :/ Aww, shame about the uni thing but I'm sure you'll get it all done. Have a lovely end to the week.

  5. I really love the jumper, shame it's itchy tho. Good luck with the Christmas shopping.

    Can't believe you get hate messages??? Some people just don't have a life, if you don't like someone's blog why visit in the first place?

  7. Such a cute jumper and an even better find when it's raided from your mum! Your hair looks really lovely and tousled today :) Ignore any haters, can't wait for the FAQ/plus size post xxx

  8. The cat jumper is brilliant - I love kitties too. Your mum must have quite the collection of goodies in her attic, jealous. I get so distracted at Uni too but the work effort at home hasn't been great recently either if I am honest. Hope you crack on ok.

  9. I love the jumper, in fact I am quite jealous I think I would quite like one with a cat on too. Raiding Mum’s wardrobe is natural daughter like behaviour, I should know I do it enough! xx

  10. This jumper is super cute. Love the design :) Amazon seem to be a tad slow at the moment I'm waiting on stuff from about 10 days ago. Bit annoying.

  12. That jumper is cute :) i wish my boyfriends birthday wasnt so close to xmas, our anniversary was only last week too! Ive run out of things to buy xx

  13. You look sexy, for realz, even though I don't like cats in general, you're rocking that jumper. Miaowww.....

    So anyway, moving on. I vote for FAQ, and yes be sure to delete the nonsense, they don't need their five minutes of fame, lets hope you don't get any at all. I use Amazon, because it's cheaper than play most times, although invisible hand is the way forward, I saved my free trial of Amazon Prime in time for Christmas, so I get everything virtually the next day which is epic. Think I'm gonna do my shopping in May next year...just to be safe. Oh P.s Loving the snow, you're SO talented ;) Xxxx

    Can't wait for the video. I suck I can't think of anything, if I do I will defo post on FS xxx

  16. I LOVE that jumper! I wish it wasn't vintage so that I could have one too ;)

    I can't remember the last time I ordered from somewhere that charged for postage! It's always so expensive and sometimes even costs more than the item I want to buy!

  17. Love the jumper, it's rather festive! My mum had some awesome duds in the seventies and eighties, but alas, over the years they have disappeared never to be seen again. I did get an awesome skirt from my Grandma but now I can't find it...

  18. Oh my god I'm in love with that jumper, it's so cute! I'm loving big chunky jumpers at the minute, you need them in this weather! Ah I'm getting so mad with Royal Mail atm, waiting for loads of things to get here I've lost count. Let's just hope they get here for Christmas! xx

  23. Honestly, what I liked about your Wednesday inspired outfit was the 'possibility.' It showed that you could work more than one type of look, you know? I like the jumper. Honestly doubt it's something I could pull off myself.

    I like the little paragraph you have on Formspring there! It made me LOL

  38. Crikey, what an amazing jumper. I think I need a little sit down after looking at how cool it is. I work in a vintage shop, and we get some cracking jumpers through, most recently a jumper with a tiger knitted in metallic yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  39. aw mega love for cats. me too! the jumper looks really cool - shame about the itchiness, i have a jumper which i could NEVER wear without a full on long sleeved top underneath. i HATE the involuntary twitching that comes hand in hand with a scratchy knit! ha.
    i'm still waiting on a parcel from h&m...ever ordered from them before? it's taking aaaages and £3.90 for p+p, grrr. I'm such a tight ass.

  40. I love free postage! I get really put off when they charge, even though its only £3.95 or something. I just don't feel like its justified lol.

  41. Love the jumper! We have like a premium account with amazon which means we get free next day delivery all the time! It's SO worth it! x

  42. This is such a lovely jumper. I'm such a cat fan too so good shout. H&M have the cutest kitten long t-shirt in at the moment and I'm very tempted to buy it. I'm such a sucker for cute animals :) x

  43. My boyfriend has his birthday on 25/12 and our anniversary is 21/12, so I'm buying presents like mad right now.
    This sweater is adorable! I love cats, I wish I could find something similar.

  44. That cat jumper is really sweet. My mum has some proper naff 80s hot pink ones with massive white fluffy cats and diamantes for eyes. Don't think anyone could ever make them look good tho!

    ps. loving the snowflakes
